Check N Go borrowers eligible for $4.3 million in refunds!
Check N Go customers are alerted to a new settlement agreement which may provide refunds. There is only a 90-day time period to pay out $4.3 million to deserving claimants all over California.
Check 'n Go's customer base is in the Central Valley, Greater Los Angeles, Sacramento, San Jose and San Francisco areas. And since these refunds are for borrowers who took out installment loans online, they truly are all over California--even in cities without brick and mortar stores.
These refunds could be up to $4,600 each and at this time of year that money could really be used by California families.
